Ex-girlfriend sues Hugh Douglas

Hugh Douglas, the former NFL player who has had multiple off-field issues in the last year, is facing another one: He’s being sued by an ex-girlfriend.

In September, Douglas was arrested and accused of assaulting his girlfriend. He later avoided jail time with a no contest plea. Now that ex-girlfriend, Hope Davila, says she didn’t get justice in the criminal case and is suing him, accusing him of assaulting her other times beyond just that incident in September.

That incident took place shortly after Douglas lost his job at ESPN following a report that he threatened to beat up a co-worker.

A first-round draft pick of the Jets, Douglas was the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1995 and later was traded to Philadelphia and became a three-time Pro Bowler with the Eagles. After finishing his playing career with the Eagles, he had a stint working for the team, best remembered for a reported locker-room fight with Terrell Owens.

    Wonder how much the gold digger can squeeze the Bad Assador for. This should be good.

    Nothing a hot bubble bath and bottle of chardonnay won’t fix.

    Hugh Douglas had the world fooled (for a while).

    This guy has been hated in Jacksonville for many years. Everyone else is finally joining the party.

    They’ve taken some marriage counseling sessions from Ray Rice and will be getting married this Summer as soon as they finish the “elevator treatment program.”

    Why does Jacksmoville hate him from his playing days? It was your pathetic team that gave an over-the-hill player a big contract.

    I can’t help but be entertained that this arrogant man is getting what he deserves.

    He’s a nice fellow.

    I don’t get it. There should have only been one incident and she should have never associated with him again. This happens far too often. Leave after the first sign of trouble.

    Guys like this never play for the Chiefs, who require players to be outstanding on the field and off.

    Eagles need Hugh to come back and beat some sense into Chip

    and Ray Rice will appear as his character witness.

    Didn’t T.O. beat this guy up? He thought he could run up on him because he was a receiver and got dusted up, lol.
